Adhering to quarantine and self-isolation guidance, the Foundation’s team is with you and is looking for new ways to deal with this crisis, reformatting usual practices and methods of operating, overcoming social isolation and continuing productive work.
We would like to thank our partners, donors and artists for their prompt communication and cooperation, and we would like to announce that:
The Grounding topic, which was announced as a key conceptual framework by the Foundation in early 2020, has become even more relevant now, as a virus outbreak is a fundamental expression of this era of human activity in geological time. The quarantine situation prompts us to rethink our attitude to the many systems that define our life in the anthropocene era, namely the political and economic structure of society, the format of interactions between people, communities, non-human entities, and ultimately the planet.
Accordingly, starting next week we will begin to share our experiences and findings in the form of links to texts, videos and podcasts. At the same time, the Foundation's team continues to work on additional more complex digital and analog formats to express the theme.
Let’s join together, even if we need to temporarily maintain (physical) distance!
We also recommend that the precautionary measures identified by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health are followed:
Most importantly, take care of yourself and your loved ones!
